What Is A Visitor Visa?

A temporary resident (visitor) visa is a travelling document which allows you to enter into Canada whether it is as a tourist, for visiting family and friends, or for business purposes. To enter Canada you may need a visitor’s visa depending on your citizenship.

To qualify for a visitor visa you must have the following:

  • proof of a job, home, financial assets, or family that will take you back to your home country
  • proof that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay

What Travel Documents Do I Need To Have?

You must make sure to have valid travel documents and identification for yourself and any children travelling with you when you enter Canada. If you fail to do so you may be delayed or unable to travel.

Travel documents that will not be accepted include the following:
